Imaginaerium “The Rise of Medici” out in September!
The long-awaited album of Imaginaerium “The Rise of Medici” will be out on September 30th 2022. The Imaginaerium project started as a concept album idea, when Eric Bouillette, a French composer, guitarist, violinist and a member of numerous rock and progressive rock bands, including Nine Skies, The Room, Solace Supplice, Wilder’s Folly and others, met a charismatic Italian vocalist Laura Piazzai during the 2019 Cheltenham production of Clive’s musical extravaganza “The Lost Journals”, starring Laura as a demonic goddess, Makaria. They soon began talking about the possibilities of working together in the near future. Clive got involved in the Imaginaerium project very early on and was soon working on developing the concept for “The Rise of Medici”, as well as writing the lyrics. In collaboration with Eric, Clive composed the music and orchestrated the forthcoming album. Additionally, he was also asked to sing the part of the villain, Rinaldo.
Imaginaerium are: Clive Nolan (composition, arrangements, lyrics, keyboards, drum recording, vocals – Rinaldo), Eric Bouillette (composition, arrangements, guitars, keyboards, mandolin, violin) and Laura Piazzai (vocals – Contessina). "The Rise of Medici" will also feature the talents of Andy Sears (vocals – Cosimo), Elena Vladyuk (vocals – Lucrezia), Mark Spencer (vocals – Monks), Scott Higham (drums), Bernard Hery (bass) and Isabella Cambini (harp).
Clive: “In some ways I thank the pandemic for allowing me the ‘free’ time to get involved with this project. It appealed to my love of history, and the idea of ‘Renaissance meets Rock’ was fascinating. Having listened to the final mixes I’m convinced people are going to love this one!”

“Alchemy” the Movie... Continued!
An idea for making a full-length movie out of Clive Nolan’s Steampunk musical “Alchemy” was born in the summer of 2014, when award winning movie director Neil Monaghan came to see the show at London Off-West End. Although a few years have passed, with the team involved in other projects, the first scene of “Alchemy” has now been successfully filmed! The filming is scheduled for the rest of 2022 and 2023 and we will be informing you about the progress of the project at ‘The Professor King Chronicles’ website and Facebook page, as well as Clive’s and Neil’s related platforms and social media.
So far, you can have a sneak preview of the “Alchemy” filmic universe in the three videos released so far:
‘First recording session’ featuring Clive Nolan and Andy Sears recording vocals for “Deception”, the first filmed scene. Watch HERE.
‘Building the scenery’ featuring Ross Andrews revealing behind-the-scenes secrets of building the “Alchemy” world. Watch HERE.
